Drawing inspiration from the “Oxbridge” tutorial system, Forward College Bachelor’s tuition programme includes:

  • 100% small group teaching
  • Weekly one-on-one tutoring for individualised feedback and guidance
  • Frequent evaluations to track your progress throughout the year and ensure your success at the final exams
  • Induction programme where you will better understand your learning style and adopt the most relevant learning methods for you
  • Gain a solid expertise in economics and quantitative methods for data analytics and data science 
  • Study questions ranging from how much of its income a household chooses to save and what goods it chooses to buy, to how all the households and businesses in the country interact to determine national output
  • Learn an approach to a logical analysis of social and individual decision making.

Economics opens a wide array of careers both in finance, universities, economic departments in government, central banks, and international organisations. Having completed their academic courses with practical skills-development and experience will offer them extended opportunities in startups, consulting firms, or bigger corporations. Central banks, governments, and other international organisations are other options for graduates in economics.

The building blocks of
the programme

The study of economics is an excellent first step for a professional career in business, research, or institutional administration. It also provides a broad basis for further studies in many areas within social sciences. Developed by the London School of Economics and Political Science, this degree will give you a thorough grounding in the principles of individual decision-making, firm strategy, and the overall functioning of an economy.

As with all Bachelor’s Programmes designed by the LSE (London School of Economics), students take four courses each year, made up of a combination of compulsory and elective classes.


NB: availability of courses depends on student interest, and not all of the above courses may be available for study during years 2 and 3. Some courses carry pre-requisites – please refer to the UoL course list for additional information. Please note that students select a maximum of 4 courses per year of study.

In the third year of your bachelor’s degree, you will do an internship. An internship gives you the best opportunities to gain valuable work experience, whilst also exploring and testing a career path. Students who accomplish their research or consulting project with an external organisation will ipso facto validate their internship.

Internship
An internship during college prepares you for the world of work and its challenges.

Expected working time: 6-8 weeks
